The Regional Health Inspectorate in the southern Bulgarian town of Kardzhali has penalized the trustee boards of two mosques over loudspeakers making noise beyond the permissible limit.

According to reports of the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency (BTA), the step was taken after a series of complaints of people living near the mosque in the heart of the town and the one in the Prileptsi residential district and after the intervention of District Governor Ivanka Taushanova.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Taushanova stressed that the municipal administration in Kardzhali was not part of the case because the Regional Health Inspectorate was in charge of overseeing noise levels.

According to the health inspectorate officials, they had detected breaches of 10-20 dB when measuring noise levels near the two mosques.

The experts said they had issued recommendations first, after which noise levels had been brought within the acceptable limits, only to witness new violations a little while after that.

As a result, the trustee boards of two mosques had been issued notices of administrative offense.

Actually these "Noise Violations" are the symptoms................. Hard implacability of Muslim leaders and blind fanatism of their adepts
make Islam the real threat for the European civilization.

This is stupid, there's cellphones, watches, people don't need a loud voice blaring for gathering. The answer is they are hostile by saying the land belongs to 'allah' and not Bulgaria.
